I want to upgrade my current motherboard with a new one which should have:
1) LGA1155 socket for Intel Core i5-3330.
2) PCI Express X16 3.0 slot for AMD Radeon 7000 series GPUs.
3) At least 2 DDR3 RAM slot.

My budget is around Rs.5500 (approximately $85), and the closest thing I found while searching the web is Intel DH77EB (around $95). If you know any micro-ATX motherboards with whose features and well in my budget range, please inform me..

I don't know why you emphasize 3.0 on the pci-express slot; I don't think even an r9 290x or gtx titan would be bottlenecked by a 2.0 slot, let alone a 7000-series gpu. However, I think this board meets your requirements and budget:

Thank you for giving me the solution :) . I actually forgot to search for b75 chipset motherboards last time :p . And the models I come up with are ASUS P8B75-M LX and P8B75-M LX Plus . I appreciate your answer but I don't know why, but I like ASUS products than Gigabyte...
